Hello, dear friends!
I went thrifting this past weekend on my way home from work. Every Friday for over a year I've passed the sign for Weekend Treasures Flea Market. I just wasn't brave enough to go by myself without knowing anything about it. I couldn't find any information online about it either. I actually just found out that they have a Facebook page. Anyway, I finally got up the courage to go by myself and it paid off!
The flea market is held in a big warehouse behind a storage facility. It's full of antiques and all kinds of junk, sort of garage sale style.
My first find was this table for $7 ~ I love it because it's crackled all over already. I can't wait to paint it. I'll post a picture of how I fix it up in a another post.
Next I bought this little blue dish for $1 ~ It will go in my kitchen to hold salt or butter
This was the only seller with a space set up more like a booth in an antique mall and not like a garage sale
I bought the wrought iron rooster for $5 ~ This is also for my kitchen.
The whole arrangement was super cute!
I didn't buy this little cabinet but I was very tempted. I had to stay on budget though!
There was a seller that had boxes prepackaged, if you will, for $5. This one was marked "Christmas" it was full of all sorts of junk. I dug through it and decided to buy it.
The seller threw in the three books for free! I'm trying to collect all of Victoria Holt's books and I also enjoy the other two authors, so that was a big score right there.
I'm going to paint the ugly swan tray white and attempt a transfer image with freezer paper. Wish me luck! My last attempt was a complete failure!
Twenty doilies, the cute green and white dish cloth, the vase on the table (we had the very same ones on all the tables at our wedding reception), 3 books, 2 pot holders, and the 6 champagne colored Christmas ornament were completely worth the $5 dollars!
I spent a total of $20 bucks which was exactly my budget for this little excursion.
This whole thrifting thing does make me wonder about one thing ~ Is this how hoarding starts?!
